Definition of a checklist

What is this checklist thing?

A checklist in our apps, Didit - Checklist for Atlassian Confluence and Didit - Checklists for Atlassian Jira are simple sorted lists with tasks. Once a task is checked off, it disappears from the list or is in strikethrough format.

Definition by Wikipedia

A checklist is a type of job aid used to reduce failure by compensating for potential limits of human memory and attention. It helps to ensure consistency and completeness in carrying out a task. A basic example is the "to do list." A more advanced checklist would be a schedule, which lays out tasks to be done according to time of day or other factors. A primary function of a checklist is documentation of the task and auditing against the documentation.

Use of a written checklist can reduce any tendency to avoid, omit, or neglect important steps in any task.
